A few days back, Song Gao, Denis Bertrand and Niranjan Nagarajan posted a paper titled ‘OPERA-LG: Efficient and exact scaffolding of large, repeat-rich eukaryotic genomes with performance guarantees’ at biorxiv. We were surprised at the ‘performance guarantee’ sales pitch in the title and mentioned about it in a blog post.
Our reader Dmitry Antipov got excited about the software due to this guarantee and decided to give it a try. Sadly, he came back very disappointed (see comment below) and likes to get refund. Authors, please help.
Software package is still very raw. For my data and version v2.0.2 it crashes with vector::range check error, and even break the tmux session it was run from.
